Brad Goode

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: October 10, 1963    

Trumpeter Brad Goode is a unique and instantly recognizable virtuoso. Whether working as a soloist, bandleader, lead trumpet man or sideman, for 25 years he has consistently been one of the busiest performers in the United States.

Brad's jazz pedigree was established through his apprenticeship with many legends of the music. As a youngster, he toured and recorded with Von Freeman, Red Rodney, Al Cohn, Eddie Harris, Ira Sullivan, Frank Morgan, Don Lanphere, Curtis Fuller, Jack DeJohnette, Ernie Krivda, Richie Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Barrett Deems and many others.

Brad led his own combo in Chicago from 1986 until 1998, appearing at major festivals and night clubs around the world, including a twelve year stint as leader of the house band at the famous Green Mill Jazz Club. As a Cultural Ambassador for the Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago, he led jazz groups on tours of Asia and the Middle East. He was named one of the most influential Chicagoans of the 1980s by the Chicago Tribune, who credited him as a “major catalyst in the revitalization of the Chicago jazz scene.”...

“ Tired of hearing trumpet clones of Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard ? Want a cliché’-free style? Try the fresh style of Brad Goode. It’s got power and swing, tenderness and depth. Despite the challenges posed by attempting to remain cliché-free, Goode manages to be quite fluid in his improvisations. His fertile imagination is carried by a seemingly effortless command of the trumpet. -Mark Gridley, Historian , author of JAZZ STYLES
